Trademark registrations filed
Page One Productions Inc., 3108 Frances Stewart Road, has filed a trademark application for the term "Belly U". The company has also registered the domain name bellyu.com. The company is run by Ann Douglas, a noted author on parenting issues. She tells CNM that the site will serve as a portal to information on pregnancy. Groove Enterprises Inc., 430-11215 Jasper Avenue NW in Edmonton, has filed a trademark application for the mark "groovetoys.com". The company has also registered a .com domain in the same name. Indications are that the company will sell sex toys online. Another company, Wizard Hill Productions, 21-4409 27 Avenue in Vernon BC, has filed a trademark application for the name "giveboobs.ca". A domain name of the same name has also been registered. The site, according to the trademark application, will be an "Internet donation service for breast augmentation of Canadian women whereby individuals or groups are able to make donations to a holding account for one or more listed Canadian female(s) that has been approved for donated breast augmentation surgery." The site, not yet up, appears modelled on giveboobs.com, a site posted by Michel Hwang in California, a woman seeking donations to have her own breast augmentation. According to her site, she has raised the necessary $4,500, and will be having the surgery on June 6. Wizard Hill appears to be owned by a gentleman named Hugh Daniels.
